Great job! I like 'em. Back in freshman year, I did a roughly HO scale drawing of a Bombardier RSD35W (DL535E) in WP&Y's late paint scheme. I just haven't had any interest to do any more lol.

I would like to know how to
caleculate the scale of the diagrams ... ?

My drawings ( exactly ratio ) : 11.025 units = 1m ,

e.g : ( length )

SD70ACe : 272 units ~ 24.5-25m
SD90MAC-H (II) : 294 units ~ 26.5-27m

-----------------------------------------------

The three diagrams above have been updated ~
( 2006-01-19 )

Gordon,
your drawings appear to be in the range of Z scale, but its hard to get anything exact. A great place to get ideas is "The Railroad Paintshop" http://paintshop.railfan.net/ . This used to be a favorite site of mine, but this kind of drawing has since fallen out of interest for me.

Very Nice! its way better than my first attempt, i did it at school for a art assignment.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
CP AC4400CW
the logo is a little messed, but i didnt have access to the net.

another good drawing site is Trainiax, its alot like the railroad paintshop, but all drawings are 1:55 scale, it has over 2000 drawings and the drawings are mostly done by the same person, check it out HERE there great for designing custom paint scemes.

Well ... -O-"
They are all very nice ! I can't believe more ..

-----------------------------------------------

I think the scale is the most difficult things
in drawing mini daigrams . Second is to draw the logo .
( if it is using "painter" to draw it ... )

You mean color it or draw the layout of the loco ?

I usually take 1 day to draw the layout
and use one more day to ckeck it carefully and edit it .
Then use 3-5 hours to colour it ( railroad paint ) .

i think that you really enjoy the time of drawing this locos.thats remind me when i were building models but models take about 1 week for the loco and about 1 or 2 days for paiting it.

Thanks all ~
I think it is too difficult to make a SL

Just similar to the SD70ACe , The SD90MAC-H II .

Ratio : ~11units("painter")=1m

EMDX GM90 .
